Frank Lautenberg Offers History Of Anti-Gun Violence Legislation

U.S. Senator Frank R. Lautenberg (D-NJ) is urging Vice President Joe Biden to consider several pieces of legislation that Lautenberg has introduced or plans to introduce to address loopholes in gun safety laws. Yesterday, President Barack Obama announced that Biden will head up a national task force on gun violence.

“For years, I have worked hard to identify the most glaring loopholes in our gun safety laws and find common-sense solutions to address those deficiencies,” Lautenberg wrote in a letter to Biden. “As we reflect on the gun violence that plagues our nation and what we can do to save lives in the future, I want to provide you with background on important legislation that I have introduced or plan to introduce in the next Congress. The time for action is now, and I am confident that the adoption of these proposals will help achieve the reduction in gun violence that we all so desperately seek.”

Lautenberg says we all have been deeply affected by the tragedy that took the lives of 20 children and six adults on December 14th in the halls and classrooms of Sandy Hook Elementary School. For years, he has worked to identify loopholes in gun safety laws and find solutions to address deficiencies. He calls Biden, “a constant partner” in the effort and says he looks forward to working with him again to stop violence.
